In 2000, the Ministry of Agriculture of the Royal Government of Bhutan carried out the first ever agricultural census for the whole country to give the Renewable Natural Resources Statistics 2000. The present publication presents these data in the form of thematic maps showing the district-wise distribution of selected indicators, thus allowing a rapid visual grasp of the implications in terms of geographic distribution and difference. The publication is divided into four parts: an introduction with a brief background on the work, and a description of the main features of the census together with a discussion of its limitations; a brief overview of Bhutan with descriptive information of some major features; the RNR Statistics 2000 in the form of text, tables and maps; and a final section with a summary of the data, the conclusions and recommendations from the study, and a short bibliography. The themes covered include agricultural land use characteristics, cereal production and yields, agricultural inputs, horticultural production, livestock population and production, agricultural marketing, and major constraints faced by the rural farm households.
